that controls and manages our nation's skies. as a result of these cuts, the vast majority of faa's nearly 47,000 employees will be furloughed for approximately one day per pay period until the end of the fiscal year, and in some cases it could be as many as two days. today we are sharing more details with our unions and with industry so they can start planning for serious impacts of sequester. here is what these automatic cuts are going to mean for the traveling public. obviously, as always, safety is our top priority, and we will never allow the amount of air travel we can handle safely to take off and land, which means travelers should expect delays. flights to major cities like new york, chicago, and san francisco and others could experience delays of up to 90 minutes during peak hours because we have fewer controllers on staff. delays in these major airports will ripple across the country. cuts to budgets mean preventative maintenance and quick repair of runway equipment might not be possible, which could lead to more delays. and once airlines see the potential impact of these furloughs,

with the faa. the manufacturer will present how it will fix battery problems that have plagued some of its planes. last month, the faa grounded all 50 of the 787s around the world after lithium-ion batteries caught fire on two separate flights. analysts say that until the planes are cleared for takeoff, boeing is losing $200 million a month in delivery payments. >>>eer learning the names of the passengers on board a plane that crashed. dr. steven roth and two co-workers are among the dead. a total of five people were killed on the plane. two other passengers have not been identified. authorities say the jetta borted it landing, struck a 60-foot pole and burst into flames. it was heading to nashville where all three victims worked. >> new this morning, today marks the two-year anniversary of the earthquake in new zealand. survivors, friends and family came together for a musical ceremony honoring the victims. ♪ 185 people were killed in that massive quake. the island country's prime minister, john key, also speoke at the event. >>> ex-police officer drew peterson will spend the next 38 ye
posies guys. the vast majority of the faa employees will be furloughed for approximately one day. in some cases, it could be as many as two days. we are sharing details with our unions and we will construct planning for serious impact. here is what these automatic cuts are going to mean for the traveling public. safety is our top priority, and we are never allowing the amount of aircraft to take off and land, so travelers should expect delays. travelers in cities like new york and san francisco can experience delays up to 90 minutes during peak hours because we have fewer controllers on staff. delays in these major airports will ripple across the country. cuts to budgets mean preventative maintenance and quick repair of runway equipment might not be possible, which could lead to more delays. and once airlines see the potential impact of these furloughs, we expect that they will change their schedules and cancel flights. so we are beginning today discussions with our unions to likely close more than 100 air traffic control towers at airports with fewer than 150,000 flight operations per ye
much. >>> boeing will meet with the faa today to propose possible fixes to the lithium ion batteries o ground for the 787 dreamliner jet. boeing's team will be led by the head of its commercial aircraft business. the solutions boeing will reportedly propose is resigning the batteries to insulate cells to prevent them from overheating and new tools to allow crews to monitor batteries for problems. united airlines is dropping the dreamliner from its flight schedule through june 5th. united has six of those jets in question in its fleet. take a look at boeing shares adding 0.6%. it's a consistent theme, reading stories about its troubles and seeing the shares hold up reasonably well. japanese chemicalmakers may be doing pretty well today. a solution perhaps to end the dream liner nightmare from boeing. tushiko, what's the connection between these chemical companies and boeing? >> hi, kelly. the majority of companies associated with the boeing 787 dreamliner crisis have had a bumpy landing, but there's one who is taking off. materio could be a possible solution to the dreamliner's nightmar
, they are inkrimtat or a lot like a meat clever. it would force the f.a.a. to regularly furlough 4,000 workers a day which accounts for more than 10% of its entire staff. 125,000 families would immediately lose rental assistance putting them at risk of homelessness, and the military's health insurance program would face a $3 billion shortfall, meaning retirees and dependents of active soldiers could lose their coverage. as congress heads into the frantic sprint to the deadline next week, how much influence will president obama have on republicans? a month ago the president signalled he would be doing more outreach towards capitol hill or at least more in-home entertaining. >> personal relationships are important, and obviously i can always do a better job and the nice thing is that now that my girls are getting older, they don't want to spend that much time with me anyway. i'll be probably calling around looking for somebody to play cards with me or something because i'm getting kind of lonely in this big house. >> senate republicans have not yet seen any evidence of that so far. according to politi
